This place is just beautiful. Rinaldo has furnished this rooftop flat with taste and lots of attention to detail. In addition to splendid views and great location, Rinaldo treated us to tasty breakfast and nibbles such as Strawberries, Cake, Chocolates and Prosecco.
When we had problems with the shower (old Roman houses don't seem to do well in terms of water pressure), he compensated with a dinner invitation.
All in all - come here for great location, great views and a friendly, but discrete host.
Very nice and cozy apartment, beautiful terrace, ideal for two.
Rinaldo (email hidden) and the apartment in which we had the chance to live for few days is marvellous too.
The place is really central and allow to go on foot to most of the sites seeing of this so beautiful town that Rome is.
Thank you so much for all.
5 stars really doesn't go far enough to credit this apartment and its wonderful owner Rinaldo. Both were absolutely perfect. Rinaldo was the complete gentlemen making us feel instantly at home and going much further then he needed to accommodate our needs and make us feel welcome in Rome. The apartment was wildly romantic and the pictures on the site really didn't prepare us for what we found - an incredibly romantic, comfortable, private, perfect, beautifully designed, spotless, cosy space with a HUGE garden roof terrace and views overlooking Rome! Did i say perfect?! The area was also the best i've stayed in Rome - 2 mins from the centre, on a beautiful old cobbled street with some of the best reviewed restaurants, cafes and quirky shops right downstairs. This place made our holiday.
#1 Great Location #2 Rinaldo wins Italian host of the year (He has a gift for Hospitality, Him and the place made Rome feel like home for those 2 nights) #3 The Roof top Terrace creates an ambiance that can't be matched by other places, trust me, You have to experience it #4 Book the place, Its really great & Rinaldo is great! (I'm not getting paid to say this, It's just that great)
We had such an amazing experience at Lucy in the Sky, we know we won't be able to accurately describe it in words! First, we'll begin by describing the magical space itself. The room is beautifully designed and very cozy - and very romantic. Rinaldo has put so much effort and thought into every detail. Throughout our stay, we kept noticing neat little details we marveled over.
The space is a converted sunroom with wrap-around windows on two sides that bring plentiful sunshine and a fresh breeze. The kitchenette is just right - with a stove-top, sink, little refrigerator - and your host keeps everything well stocked with snacks (and if you're lucky like we were) a nice cake to start off our week.
Then there is the deck! Since you are on the 6th floor, you will have amazing views in several directions overlooking Rome. You can even see the Colosseum! It's so romantic by day having breakfast at the picnic table as you plan your day, or at night lounging on the outdoor bed as you have wine under the lights and sounds of the city - relaxing from your day of exploring.
The neighborhood is right in the middle of a quiter, residential area (as quiet as Rome can be, that is) but close to everything - most sights are within walking distance. Plenty of non-touristy restaurants and bars within several blocks. Lots of great boutique shops around as well.
Rinaldo, our host, couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. It quickly became apparent how dedicated he is to making this space much more than just a hotel room replacement - with his personality, charm and generosity, he made our trip to Rome truly memorable.
We can't wait to go back - and there's only one place we'll ever stay!
The rooftop terasse is magnificent with flowers and an incredible view of Rome. The small and cosy flat is decorated with a lot of taste. A very intimate and relaxing place.
Breakfast and more, everything you need for a nice aperitif on the terrasse at sunset.
Rinaldo went out of his way to make our stay the best possible. He (email hidden), discret, helpful and a nice person. Thank you Rinaldo!:-)
Perfect for a romantic Roman holiday. We recommand it full heartedly.

Reynaldo has been a fantastic guest, Very friendly in all cases, very respectful of my place, It has been a pleasure meeting and hosting him, I recommend him to other Airbnb members!
Rinaldo é uma pessoa muito sociável e extrovertida, o que facilita muito o convívio com ele. Apesar de não falar a sua língua, não tivemos dificuldade em nos comunicar. Adorei recebê-lo em minha casa. Recomendo com certeza.
Rinaldo owns a little pearl among the romans roofs. "Lucy in the sky" (email hidden) to stay with a great view and every possible conforts, including an amazing terrace to enjoy the roman summer. Rinaldo is very attractive, he has a great sense of humor and he (email hidden). A little plus for the gourmand friends. Rinaldo is an amazing cook and he hosts on his terrace fantastic dinners from time to time. "Lucy in the sky" is my home away from home and I stay there everytime I am in town. I truly recommend it and I'm sure you will enjoy!! Annina
